As a family
From your hotel in Charleville-Mézières, start with a visit to the Ducale Square, located in the heart of the city, and take the time to admire its seventeenth century buildings covered with blue slate. Then head to the ramparts erected in the eleventh century on the banks of the Meuse. Another witness to the rich history of this Ardennes city, the basilica of Notre-Dame d'Esperance is worth seeing for its remarkable stained glass windows by René Dürrbach, Picasso's collaborator. Finish your weekend by following in the footsteps of the most famous child of the city, Arthur Rimbaud. A museum is dedicated to him and his birthplace is open for visits.
